    How is the Turbo on snow and ice

    I am about to lease a 2003 Turbo and since this is a leased car it will be driven.... How is the Turbo on the snow with winter tires .....

    Hi Felker, and welcome here!

    The Turbo is just great on the snow, as long as it's equipped with the appropriate tires. You can check following threads to get an idea:

    You definetely need winter tires. Go for the Porsche approved winter tires, they're perfect for the Turbo. But never forget: ground clearance isn't that good, despite the 4WD the Turbo is no snow king.

    I had snow 2 weeks ago,.....but no 4wd.
    My targa isn't that good on snow

    arrivederci, pierre

    Took my 03 out couple weeks ago - got stuck going up hill in about 4 to 6 inches. When I turned PSM off car went right through the stuff. Only issue is how deep.
